Personal injuries can range from traumatic head injuries to sprained ankles. No matter what kind you suffer from, it's frustrating and can make it hard to do the things you love.
Car accidents have the potential to cause many kinds of injuries. Some of the most common include whiplash, lacerations, broken bones, muscle strains, sprains and internal injuries. It's possible to suffer a head injury, chest injury and other injuries, too.
In the summer and fall, you might not think that a slip-and-fall accident would happen. However, as the temperatures begin to drop and frost forms at night, it's more common to see accidents happen.
When you got into a wreck, you knew immediately that you were badly hurt. After being rushed to the hospital, it turned out that you broke several bones and needed surgery to correct the breaks.
When you were running through your neighborhood, you felt safe. It was the middle of the day, and no one seemed to be around. It wasn't until you heard someone shouting that you realized a dog was approaching. As you turned, you saw the dog leaping. Moments later, you found yourself on the ground fighting off a dog intent on biting and maiming you.
Sometimes, people do things that they know they shouldn't. For example, take a case out of New Haven that involved teens between the ages of 13 and 17. The group of teens has been charged with possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia, eluding police and receiving stolen property.
When you suffer a personal injury, it could be anything from broken bones to a severe head injury. The only thing that you know is that it's changing everything about your life. You can't do the things you love to do, and it's all because of another person's actions.
A serious personal injury can take many months or years to recover from. In some cases, a full recovery may not even be an option.
You'd never drink and drive or get in a car with anyone who had been drinking. However, you can't prevent other drivers from getting behind the wheel when they're under the influence. Nonetheless, you can learn to spot them and help keep yourself (and others on the road) safe.
Trips and falls are common accidents that people suffer every day. Hazardous conditions on someone else's property are some of the most common causes of these accidents. Unsafe conditions could be anywhere, including a residential apartment, governmental facility or retail store.
